Formal Charges For Mt. Vernon Man Arrested On Friday

(MT. VERNON, IL) — A 24-year-old Mt. Vernon man arrested on a Jefferson County warrant late Friday night was formally charged Monday in Jefferson County Court with multiple felonies related to the warrant as well as new charges stemming from the arrest. Terrance Williams was arrested by Mt. Vernon police Friday while in a bar on Broadway. He was wanted on a warrant charging him with two counts Class X home invasion causing injury, Class X armed robbery with a firearm and Class 1 felony residential burglary. He was additionally charged in separate case with Class 3 felony being a felon in possession of a firearm, and three counts Class 4 felony resisting a peace officer resulting in injury. Officers conducting a bar check Friday night at Geo’s Lounge on Broadway in Mt. Vernon noticed Williams in the establishment and attempted to arrest him on the outstanding home invasion warrant. Williams reportedly resisted arrest, which resulted in minor injuries to the officers. They reportedly found a loaded gun on Williams when he was finally subdued. He is next scheduled in court March 2 on a petition to revoke probation on a previous felony conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
